I'm researching CAN open safety sensors and trying to establish how the communication works. I'm under the impression that CAN Open safety is not a totally new protocol but rather a way of transmitting data between devices in a safe way, using standard CAN Open protocol by anti-phasing some of the message contents.
Will the MC4xFS modules support CAN Open Safety communication with the specification of a device that is compliant with SIL 2, pLd as detailed below?
CAN interface (hardware):
According to ISO 11898-1 & ISO 11898-2 (also known as CAN 2.0 A/B)
CANopen application layer and communication profile:
CANopen Safety protocol: EN 50325-5, CANopen protocol: EN 50325-4 (CiA 301 v4.0 & and 4.2.0)
CANopen device profile for inclinometers: CiA 410 version 2.0.0
The common ground between the two is the CAN 2.0A and CAN 2.0B, does this mean i can achieve CAN safety communication?
Has anyone had any experience with these devices or perhaps a template application they could share?
